Best table design for 137 identical power supply logs

My application needs to log data from 137 identical power supplies daily at a certain time interval, into SQL Server database. What is the best possible design, especially in terms of space usage?

Best is a VERY relative term. I'm missing about 98% of your business requirements, so am only taking a VERY broad guess based on the small amount of information provided. Create a table with an ID (integer) and a description. This will be used as a codes table for each of the power supplies. Create another table with an ID (FK to the first table created), datetime and column for your parameters. Beyond that, it is impossible to suggest anything. You are basically asking for an optimal database design based on a single sentence. I would need a LOT of additional information to even begin to put something together that may meet your needs.
